Adult sized workbench
PDF versionPDF version

Hi Ana!  Love your plans and project ideas.  Do you have a plan or layout for an adult work bench?  I would love to build my husband a work bench/wood working area but I haven't found any plans on your site for something like that.  How do you have your shop set up?  We have a very packed garage for him to work in so space is limited.  I'd like to maybe making him some freestanding shelving units too, that way he'd have more space.

Any comments are welcome!

 

THank you,

I was just checking out the WE site and found a great outdoor table that I think could be great for a miter saw table, if beefed up.  Cute design, anyway.  What do you think?

I've built a workbench from the Fine Woodworking site here: http://www.finewoodworking.com/workbench , which is great, but depending on your level of woodworking comfort may still be a stretch for you. I also have two workbenches in my shop made from this kit: http://www.amazon.com/Simpson-.....B000MJZBD0 and I can tell you this makes an absolutely rock solid workbench. All you need to be able to do is cut your 2x4's to length and use a cordless drill and you can make a heavy duty bench at whatever height you want, up to 8 feet long w/no problems. I'm 6'4" so I like a taller work table than most, but you can size it however you need it. 

 

Good luck.

Thank you for the link. I was looking for that exact bench plan. I'm going to put it on wheels and I'm ready to build.
